The government has sent out a notification saying that all categories of visitors will be charged an additional amount. Until now, the entry to Taj Mahal cost Rs 40 for domestic visitors and those from SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) countries, and Rs 600 for other foreign visitors.
